"Aunt Mary," aka "The Story of Aunt Mary,
was a 1942 - 1952, 15 minute per week-day, continuing serial/soap opera, heard over the NBC West Coast Network.
Although Aunt Mary did not make it to NBCs full National Network broadcast schedule, she was offered an expanded Southwestern Regional area eastward as far as Texas or "... as far east as El Paso & Dallas," as bragged of in a 1942 syndication sales pitch.
Aunt Mary Lane, a wise 'older' woman, lived on “Willow Creek Road.”

Sadly, this is the only photo available to us of the wonderful Jane Morgan (aka Aunt Mary Lane) (aka Mrs. Maggie/Maragaret Davis).
Jane Morgan, the actor, is often confused with the much younger, singer/actor, Jane Morgan. * def gp ddh
